Proposed Palm Beach Meat Market disgruntles quiet loving locals

Weighing locals’ concerns that the proposed Meat Market restaurant at 191 Bradley Place in Palm Beach would increase noise and traffic in the area, Architectural Review Commission Chairman Bob Vila said he would recommend changes to the architectural plans to the Town Council, the Palm Beach Post reported. The Town Council will review plans for the site at a hearing on October 1o, according to John Page, Planning, Building and Zoning Department director.

The modified plans call for an increase in the height of the 1,400-square-foot north-side dining wing — a change that will require a variance. But the most important of the proposed changes for locals is that all new openings in the restaurant be unable to open, except for an emergency exit on the southwestern corner.

Because of the eatery’s hip and female-oriented nature, nearby residents are worried that the restaurant could disrupt their quaint lifestyles. “This translates to us as a bar scene ‘pick up joint’ that does not belong in a residential neighborhood in Palm Beach,” Marsha and Richard Goldberg said in a lette written to the commission. Another letter written by Richard and Carole Crystal simply read: “Palm Beach is not South Beach.” [Palm Beach Post]Christopher Cameron
